Jefferson County sheriff

Busted: A man seen running away from a property along township Road 166, Bloomingdale, was charged with trespassing, Saturday. Deputies said a woman had alerted neighbors that someone was on her porch and appeared to be injured, and when they went to investigate saw a man running. The man told them he was working on a car and it fell off the jack, crushing his ankle so he went looking for help. Deputies said they reviewed security footage while he was at Trinity West for treatment.

Silence is golden: A man described by deputies as being “highly intoxicated” ended up being arrested, Sunday. The man turned up at a family member’s house and began arguing with them, at one point spitting on and assaulting a sibling. The man had a very strong odor of alcohol on his breath, they said, and chose to continue yelling at his family rather than answer questions. Deputies said he was taken into custody after being warned several times to stop yelling and fighting.
